  1. If you really want to target them get the cowbells and spin n glows. They make a huge difference. Gambler will hook you up rite! Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  2. I don't speak for everyone but I prefer significantly lighter leaders 15-20lb depending on what rod it's on. Spring is primarily a spoon bite and as others said once the fleas get bad you will want to up your rigger lines. Welcome and best of luck out there! Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  3. Just spoons here, I'm sure someone will start a best flasher fly thread for the season! Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  4. Hey fellas! I look forward to these posts every year. It's fun to see if there's a lakewide trend as well as a starting point for many new anglers. Since no one else started one I'll kick it off! 1: carbon 14 was king all year every trip 2: dw 42nd 3: dirty white boy Honorable mention: lemon ice So what worked for you?!?!?

  5. Good stuff, and I leaned a new knot! I don't know if I will ever use it but hey knowing is half the battle. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  6. I just got done playing and yes when I pulled the braid to tight that's what happen. And for whatever reason it's easier for me to go under the braid then over the top and pull straight. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  7. Honestly I'm not sure but I'll try a few things later and see if I can't help figure it out Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  8. Eyeslayer I didn't have much tension on the floro with the heavier line. I just tied it a couple more times the trick seems to be having the rite amount of tension on the mainline it has to be loose enough to coil over Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  9. I did it just like this under then over you can see the process good in this one how the floro wraps braid. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  10. Swivel is why I was asking but I just attempted the knot a few times what lb floro are you tying in. I tried with 8lb and struggled went to 17 and it was quite easy maybe try with something heavy for practice Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  11. May I ask if your trying to leader trolling rods or casting rods? Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  12. I have 10s and 12s and like you said I have no issues cranking I find it easy to say the least. I pour concrete for a living so 15 seconds winding isn't a deal breaker. I also have a teenage son lol. The biggest benefit I see so far is when **** hits the fan and 2-3-4 rods go off I may get back in the water 2-3 minutes faster at best. But then again with that much gear up I'd probably make a aggressive turn and reset on the same line Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  13. Where are you located? Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  14. Thanks everyone, I fish every weekend weather allows and have no issues cranking them up. I was planning on upgrading my manuals this year already I broke a housing on one at the end of the year . As far as the money part I've learned time and time again buy once cry once. I agree that it could be more convenient The only time I got sick of cranking the ball up was the first time we targeted lakers lol In regards to battery draining how bad is it? I would wire them off my main and my kicker dose not charge it. Would it be a matter of cranking the main motor a couple times a day or do they flat out kill batteries?

  15. Great point! Anyone else? Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
